Donuts of Long Beach
For the series “Donuts of Long Beach”, every known, independently owned donut shop in Long Beach, CA with “donut” in the title was visited. A plain glazed donut was purchased with a specialty donut and both were documented by placing the objects and receipts for the objects on a flatbed scanner in a darkened room, creating a high resolution scan to accentuate the objects’ gemlike qualities. The final installation is made of a grid of approx. 60 images, each 5×7”, pinned directly to the wall with white map pins. The series presents multiple threads, questions, and some dead ends within seemingly “straightforward”, evidentiary imagery.
2007, prints are 7×5″, installed in a grid of 56 prints (7 across, 8 high), pinned to the wall with white map pins.
